C40 Far End camera control select

We have a C40 and 3 C20 codecs.  When they are all connected to the same video call, how do you select which camera your want to control?  When we select "far end" only the first camera is selected for control.

The Lifesize Room system we used to have would allow you to select any endpoint to control by pressing the "far end" button on the remote multiple times to highlight the selection.

Thanks in advance,

Currently, you are not able to select which far end site using the remote control, so you can only control the 1st site that is connected to the multi-party call.

If you are using the API, you will be able to do find out the site connected by using the xommand xstatus conference, then you can use the and commands to control the cameras, not as intuitive though.

If you are using the C-series touch panel, you are able to select the respective far end site and control their camera accordingly.

I would like to see this functionality in a future software release.  Many customers do use this feature and suggesting the Touch Panel is a hard sell considering the cost.
